Synthetis 2015

The SYNTHETIS 2015 International Summer Course for Composers will take place in Radziejowice (near Warsaw) between July 13 – 25, 2015, organized by the Music Gardens Foundation. Young composers (up to 35 years old) from all over the world are invited to apply by April 30, 2015 for the opportunity to attend lectures and individual meetings with such renowned composers as Martijn Padding, Zhou Long, Simon Steen-Andersen, Philippe Manoury and Paweł Hendrich (computer-aided composition). More information and on-line application form available at:

The Courses will be held in the Radziejowice Palace – a beautiful palace complex surrounded by picturesque landscape, situated 50 km from Warsaw (pictured above). The venue, originally dating back to the 17th century, has become a creative work home for artists, writers, musicians and painters thanks to its unique atmosphere.

Created and directed by Zygmunt Krauze, the SYNTHETIS International Summer Course for Composers is a successful reactivation of the legendary composition courses initiated in 1980 by the Polish Society for Contemporary Music.
